Upon hearing Jiang Lan’s words to the finely-dressed young man, Duan Ling Tian looked to Ling Jue Yun for confirmation.
Ling Jue Yun nodded, indicating that Jiang Lan had said the same thing to him as well. However, the difference was Jiang Lan had asked him to extend the invitation to Duan Ling Tian as well.
“You gave me your promise that day, didn’t you?” Jiang Lan looked at the finely-dressed young man pointedly.
“So what?” The young man smiled arrogantly. “Although you’re stronger than me, since my master is here, what can you do about it? A puny Overarching Heaven Supreme Celestial like you expects me, Yuan Zheng, to keep my promise to you? What a joke!”
“Do you really think there’s nothing I can do to you with your master here?” Jiang Lan asked as he stared at Yuan Zheng, the finely-dressed young man, intently.
“My master is an Eight Trigrams Celestial King. What do you think you can do to me with him here?” Yuan Zheng said smugly with a contemptuous expression on his face.
“This Yuan Zheng is going to regret his words.” Ling Jue Yun softly whispered to Duan Ling Tian who was standing next to him.
“Didn’t you say the Formation Jiang Lan cast in his past life is weaker now?” Duan Ling Tian asked curiously.
“Even so, that Formation can’t be breached by anyone weaker than a Celestial Lord. Don’t forget, he was a Celestial Emperor in his previous life!” Ling Jue Yun said.
As soon as Ling Jue Yun’s voice fell, Jiang Lan looked up at the sky where hundreds of people were hovering before he pointed at Yuan Zheng and asked flatly, “Who’s his master?”
A cold scoff rang in the air in response to Jiang Lan’s question. Then, a middle-aged man dressed in a loose fine robe stepped forward. He said disdainfully, “Lad, do you really intend to attack my disciple in my presence?”
“An Eight Trigrams Celestial King!”
As soon as the middle-aged man stepped forward, the group of peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials, including Duan Ling Tian, shifted their attention to him. Yuan Zheng had mentioned earlier that his master was an Eight Trigrams Celestial King!
At the same time, many peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials began to whisper among themselves.
“I didn’t expect there to be people who broke their promises. If I knew this, I would’ve informed my master about this matter as well and asked him to accompany me here!”
“It seems like it’s not always a good thing to keep one’s promise. If our elders are here, we won’t be helplessly stuck in this predicament.”
“With so many powerhouses here, I hope we’ll be able to take advantage of the situation and get the h*ll out of here as well!”
Based on their conversations, it was clear some of them regretted keeping their promises and did not inform anyone or bring anyone along with them.
Upon hearing the middle-aged man’s words, Jiang Lan smirked as killing intent flashed in narrowed eyes. “Of course. Even with you here, I intend to do so…” Before he even finished speaking, he had already begun to make his move.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The sound of water rang in the air again as a beam of blue light that flowed like water surged out of Jiang Lan’s body and swept toward Yuan Zheng. He had moved so fast that he caught everyone off guard.
“You’re seeking death!”
Along with the blue energy that resembled a water dragon, Jiang Lan swung his fist toward Yuan Zheng as he drew close to Yuan Zheng.
Yuan Zheng who finally regained his senses at this moment hastily activated his purely defensive King Grade Celestial Weapon. A mustard light shone as the silhouette of armor appeared on his body. Based on this, it was clear that he had comprehended the law of earth. At the same time, tens of thousands of something that resembled amulets began to spin around the armor, forming a strange defensive Formation. Appearance-wise, the defense Formation looked indestructible.
‘It’s the Defense Profundity from the law of earth!’ Duan Ling Tian’s eyes glinted when he saw the profundity Yuan Zheng had cast. The Defense Profundity, as its name suggested, was a defensive profundity from the law of earth. It was almost on par with the Crystal Barrier Profundity, but it was much more flexible than the Crystal Barrier Profundity. After casting the Defense Profundity, it was as though a wall of defensive Formation had been erected around one’s body.
The water dragon collided with Yuan Zheng’s defenses with a loud bang. The amulets spinning around him trembled for a moment but remained intact.
“No matter how good your combat skills are, it’s useless if you can’t breach my defenses. I couldn’t land a hit on you during our previous battle, but you couldn’t breach my defenses as well,” Yuan Zheng said arrogantly under the protection of his armor, “Do you think you’re suddenly capable of breaching my defenses now? Ridiculous!”
Yuan Zheng’s master watched this high up in the sky with no intention to intervene. He had confidence in his direct disciple’s defensive ability. Even if Jiang Lan had mastered three profundities from a law, it was impossible for Jiang Lan to kill his disciple in a short time. At most, Jiang Lan would only injure his disciple.
Meanwhile, the peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials fervently discussed among themselves. They were amazed by how strong Yuan Zheng’s defenses were. There were a few who had previously fought Jiang Lan, and they confirmed that Jiang Land had only mastered two profundities from the law of water.
“What a strong defense!”
“So this is the law of earth’s Defense Profundity?”
“The Defense Profundity from the law of earth is extremely powerful… With Yuan Zheng’s cultivation base and the protection of the purely defensive King Grade Celestial Weapon, the Earth Elemental Profundity, and the Defense Profundity, it’s impossible for Jiang Lan to kill Yuan Zheng in a short time even if Jiang Lan has a King Grade Celestial Weapon!”
“I’ve fought with Jiang Lan before. He has only mastered two profundities from the law of water.”
“Me too. I can confirm he has only mastered two profundities from the law of water… Therefore, not only is it difficult for him to breach Yuan Zheng’s defenses, but it’ll be difficult for him to hurt Yuan Zheng, let alone kill Yuan Zheng!”
On the contrary, some of the peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials frowned as they stared at Jiang Lan in confusion and speculated among themselves.
“Two profundities from the law of water?”
“Didn’t Jiang Lan master three profundities from the law of water?”
“It seems like Jiang Lan had deliberately hidden his strength when he battled Yuan Zheng.”
This group of peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials younger than 200 years old who possessed heaven-defying talents had comprehended three profundities from a law. Similarly, they had also fought and were defeated by Jiang Lan in the past. Therefore, they were certain Jiang Lan did not only master two profundities from the law of water.
“Do you really think this is the extent of my strength?” Jiang Lan’s expression remained calm from the beginning until now. His smirk deepened as he looked at Yuan Zheng meaningfully.
Naturally, with these words, some peak Overarching Heavenly Supreme Celestials began to wonder if Jiang Lan had hidden his true strength.
Yuan Zheng scoffed coldly. Although his tone was still dripping with disdain, he had become warier. “Stop joking around!” The mustard amulets around him began to spin swiftly, seemingly creating a barrier that was even stronger than the one before.
At this moment, a double-edged saber appeared in Jiang Lan’s hand. He moved the saber lightly before a blue energy shot toward Yuan Zheng, leaving spatial tears in its wake.
Soon enough, the blue energy morphed into a water dragon again.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
As the water dragon shot out, Jiang Lan slashed with his saber, causing the water dragon to split into hundreds of thousands of droplets of water in the air that eventually spun into a violent storm, sweeping toward Yuan Zheng. Then, he continued to move his saber, which was glowing with a blue light, around to create more droplets of water with his Celestial Origin Energy.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
All this time, the saber’s light grew more and more intense until it was almost blinding. Clearly, the sable had reached the peak of its power at this moment. It was incredibly formidable
As Jiang Lan’s seemingly invincible attack swept toward Yuan Zheng, Yuan Zheng’s master who could no longer stay idle cried out, “Stop!”
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Yuan Zheng’s master, the Eight Trigrams Celestial King, did not hesitate to make his move as his attacks descended from the sky like bolts of lightning.
However, at the same time, the translucent barrier appeared again. It was like an unmovable mountain as it easily deflected the attacks from an Eight Trigrams Celestial King.
The people hovering in the air gasped when they saw the formidable defensive Formation beneath their feet.
“What kind of Formation is this?!”
